Designer: Eric Kim

Season: Fall 2011

Color Palette: black, crimson, grey

Accessories: scarves, combat boots, leather backpacks, gloves.

Personal thoughts: Eric Kim’s alternative men’s collection as a whole worked well together. Each piece was very versatile and could be easily interchanged to make a combination of looks. I agreed with his choice in using a crimson leather jacket as his stand-out piece. It seems to be the hot new color for Fall 11.

Rate: I give this collection a 8/10.

MBFW F/W 11: Patricia Field’s Valentine’s Day Ball

Love, or should I say lust, is in the air! Patricia Field, New York designer and stylist from Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Devil Wears Prada, kicked off Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Valentine’s Day and her birthday with an extravagant Valentine’s Day Ball.  She has always been known for throwing fabulous parties that capture the “imagination and the energy of the dream of New York” and last night’s ball co-hosted by Susanne Bartsch and Kelly Coutrone did not disappoint!

Hundreds of people, from socialites to Hollywood stars, sipped on cocktails and danced the night away to DJ Cassidy. The ball was costume themed and wow did the guests bring it!!! The legendary Patricia Field wore a glamorous red dress that sparkled head-to-toe and an orange fur poncho. When our team asked her plans for the future she responded, “I’m looking forward to one day at a time and that’s it. I don’t look for the future. I don’t ask for the future. I just get on my surfboard and I ride. No expectations.”

Others busted out their platinum blonde wigs, 5 ft horns and platform shoes. Check out how fashion week celebrates V-day.

Rebecca Taylor – Fall 2011 Runway

Earlier today I got to attend the oh-so-packed Rebecca Taylor, Fall 2011 runway show on the stage at Lincoln Center. Her S/S collection was one of my favorite’s from last fashion week so I was excited to see her debut her fall looks on the runway today! Check out some of the highlights from her show!

About: “The Rebecca Taylor collection is best known for providing the eternally evolving modern girl with fresh, feminine clothing to compliment and refine her individual sense of style. Playful use of color, prints and textures in silhouettes that enhance a spirited lifestyle.” -mbfashionweek.com

The show was refreshing and fun, yet still kind of subtle. It was a packed house & I don’t think anyone left feeling disappointed. Even the music was amazing, with a remix of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” by Jamie of the XX blaring as the models walked their walks. Here are some photos straight off the runway!
